From the Preface:
You'll find four kinds of Nutcrackers in the pages that follow; each resembles a kind of
puzzle you may have seen before but works a maddening twist on the pattern. Missing Persons
puzzles, for instance, take traditional, laborious word-search puzzles and trick them out with
cryptic clues and a hidden theme. They are an excellent introduction to the cryptic technique
employed in Cryptic Crosswords, which resemble typical Sunday puzzles only to the degree
that Maseratis resemble Fords. Labyrinths, which follow, combine elements of mazes, riddles,
and standard crosswords to create brain twisters not quite like any of their ingredients. And
Verbatims reconfigure standard double-acrostics with puns and quotations of more than
mechanical interest.
Each type of puzzle is explained in a brief introduction, but don't expect to understand
exactly what you're doing until you've tried a few Even then, we change the patterns to keep
you on your toes. You do have two advantages over 7 Days readers, however. First, each puzzle
is graded: One acorn means it's moderately hard, two means it's difficult, three means it's a
really tough nut to crack. And another advantage you have is that you don't have to wait seven
days for the solution. The puzzles are explained in detail at the back of the book. If you're stuck,
use these solutions to help you with individual clues before giving up on the entire puzzle. And
reading through a solution even after you've successfully completed a puzzle is one of the best
ways to prepare yourself for another round of torture
